FALLS CHURCH, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- As any parent knows, children make every single aspect of life better except one: mealtime. From cajoling kids to eat something green, to threatening them with no dessert if they don't finish their meals, feeding children sometimes feels like an unfair prison sentence. The Fairview Park Marriott, however, is offering a reprieve to parents everywhere with its Kids Eat Free promotion. Just in time for springtime travel, this Falls Church hotel near the DC Metro is giving families a new lease on dining.
Parents won't find a more appetizing offer among Northern VA hotel deals. From waffles in the morning, to burgers at lunch, to pasta for dinner, kids have plenty of ways to eat well during their vacation. And the dessert options (like biscotti gelato and flourless chocolate torte) may just be enough incentive for kids to finish their meals without coercion for once.
Parents can look forward to enjoying equally satisfying meals off the grownup menu, too. Offering creative dishes that riff on classic American fare, the hotel's Ellipse Restaurant can accommodate virtually any palate, from the health-conscious (think garden-vegetable paninis), to the just plain hungry (horseradish-crusted NY strip steak anyone?).
When it's not time to eat, families can take advantage of the hotel's superb amenities. The heated indoor-outdoor pool and fitness center afford plenty of ways to stay active, while 32-inch flat-screen televisions and high-speed Internet access in the guest rooms ensure no kid has to go too long without access to entertainment.
Unique among Falls Church, VA hotels, the property also offers free self-parking as well as complimentary shuttle service to local attractions. This means guests don't have to worry about logistics while planning their activities. Located among Mosaic District Virginia hotels, the property is enviably close to the new development's exciting mix of activities, shopping and dining, not to mention the upscale Tysons Corner. Or families can travel further afield to explore nearby D.C.'s diverse selection of attractions, like the National Zoo, the Washington Monument and, of course, the White House.
Available through December 31, 2014, the Kids Eat Free package includes overnight accommodations and all kids' meals for children ages 12 and younger. Rates start at $69 per night. Travelers must use the promotional code ZJ6 when booking to secure the package. More information is available by calling 1-800-834-6704 or visiting http://www.marriott.com/specials/mesOffer.mi?marrOfferId=798207&displayLink=true.

Accommodations include the latest high-tech conveniences like high-speed Internet access and iPod docking stations, plus comforts like pillow-top mattresses, coffee/tea service and spacious desks. Guests with sensitivities can opt for a PURE® allergy-friendly room. More than 17,400 square feet of meeting space is able to host conferences, board meetings and more. Those in need of energy can get a pick-me-up at the Coffee Kiosk (serving Starbucks brew), mingle over drinks at the Ellipse Lounge or tuck in to more substantial fare at the American-style Ellipse Restaurant. Considering the numerous surrounding attractions, from the new Mosaic District to the perennially popular Tysons Galleria, there's always plenty to see and do.
